The dopamine D2 receptor has been extensively studied in relation to alcoholism, substance abuse, and nicotine dependence. The most frequently examined polymorphism linked to this gene is the Taq1A restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) (dbSNP rs1800497; g.32806C>T in GenBank AF050737.1), which has been associated with a reduction in D2 receptor density, although this is not universally accepted. The Taq1A RFLP lies 10 kB downstream of DRD2 and may therefore fall within a different… 
Ankyrin Repeat and Kinase Domain Containing 1 Gene, and Addiction Vulnerability
TLDR
The findings of the ANKK1 gene and its protein suggest that the TaqIA SNV is a marker of brain differences, both in structure and in dopaminergic function, that increase individual risk to addiction development.
The ANKK1 Protein Associated with Addictions has Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Localization and Shows a Differential Response of Ala239Thr to Apomorphine
TLDR
First evidence of functional ANKK1 differences that are marked by TaqIA and could be associated with vulnerability to addiction is provided.
Studying the Association between TaqIA polymorphism in ANKK1 Gene and Heroin and Methamphetamine Addiction in Markazi Province
TLDR
The results of this study revealed that the A1 allele of TaqIA polymorphism is significantly associated with heroin and methamphetamine addiction.
Evaluation of a structural polymorphism in the ankyrin repeat and kinase domain containing 1 (ANKK1) gene and the activation of executive attention networks
TLDR
It is found that carriers of the A1 allele show gene-associated functional activation in an anatomically specific, dopamine-rich region of the brain comprising the anterior cingulate gyrus, a finding partially consistent with prior data from functional imaging genetics.
The ANKK1 Kinase Gene and Psychiatric Disorders
TLDR
Current data show that the TaqIA polymorphism may be a marker of both DRD2 and ANKK1 genetic variants, which raises the question of whether signaling players intervene in the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders.
The Addiction-Related Gene Ankk1 is Oppositely Regulated by D1R- and D2R-Like Dopamine Receptors
TLDR
The ankyrin repeat and kinase domain containing 1 (ANKK1) TaqIA polymorphism has been extensively studied as a marker of the gene for dopamine receptor D2 (DRD2) in addictions and other dopamine-associated traits and it was found that Ankk1 mRNA was upregulated after activation of D1R-like dopamine receptors with SKF38393.
Haplotype spanning TTC12 and ANKK1, flanked by the DRD2 and NCAM1 loci, is strongly associated to nicotine dependence in two distinct American populations.
TLDR
A risk locus for ND, important both in AAs and EAs, maps to a region that spans TTC12 and ANKK1, which is useful in evaluating the many earlier discrepant findings regarding association of DRD2 with substance dependence.

D2 receptors binding potential is not affected by Taq1 polymorphism at the D2 receptor gene
TLDR
The results of this study failed to replicate the previously reported association between A1 allele and lower D2 receptor expression.
Structure of the p53 Tumor Suppressor Bound to the Ankyrin and SH3 Domains of 53BP2
TLDR
The crystal structure of the p53 core domain bound to the 53BP2 protein revealed that the SH3 domain binds the L3 loop of p53 in a manner distinct from that of previously characterized SH3-polyproline peptide complexes, and provides evidence that the 53 BP2-p53 complex forms in vivo and may have a critical role in the p 53 pathway of tumor suppression.
A global survey of haplotype frequencies and linkage disequilibrium at the DRD2 locus
TLDR
A new measure of the amount of overall disequilibrium shows least disequ equilibrium in African populations, somewhat more in European populations, and the greatest amount in East Asian and Amerindian populations.
The A1 allele of the human D2 dopamine receptor gene predicts low D2 receptor availability in healthy volunteers
TLDR
The association between the A1 allele and low D2 receptor availability in healthy subjects indicates that the A 1 allele of the TaqIA polymorphism might be in linkage disequilibrium with a mutation in the promoter/regulatory gene element that affects dopamine D2 receptors expression.
Polymorphisms in the dopamine D2 receptor gene and their relationships to striatal dopamine receptor density of healthy volunteers
TLDR
The results suggest that DRD2 genotypes may participate differentially in the regulation of striatal dopamine D2 receptor density in healthy human subjects.
